  • You are safe, as long as your doc has given to clearance that everything is healed up. You have to wait after a vasectomy, only because there are sperm in the tubing past where they cut (vas defrens), so they want to make sure everything is cleared from the tubing before you go about having unprotected sex. That's not the case with us women, so you'll be okay.
